Diablo III Review 0

It has been a while since the demon Diablo has been loose upon the world, but finally Blizzard has decided that not only is the demon Diablo making his presence known but so is his brethren. It is now time for what seems to be the final battle to take place. You'll have to take up arms, learn skills, cast spells, and hope that you have what it takes to save all of human kind.Graphically this game is a step up from the previous addition, but that comes as no surprise since Diablo II was released ...

Dust: An Elysian Tail Review 0

This game was a long time coming. I first saw it at PAX (well PAX: PRIME, before there was a PAX East), and it won a competition put together by Microsoft, and then it kind of disappeared off the radar. Now its finally released to the public. In this artistic side scrolling RPG game you'll be playing the part of someone named Dust, a person who can't remember his past, but who fights to correct the wrongs that seem to be happening to the land and its people.Graphically this game looks amazing. T...

Dishonored Review 0

You are going to play the part of Corvo the protector to the Empress of Dunwall and her daughter. You have been sent on a mission to discover if the mysterious plague that seems to be infesting the city is happening in any of the neighboring cities. You do it with such skill that you actually come back early. Little do you know that you're playing into the hands of a corrupt individual who will take your early arrival and make the city believe that you are the one who assassinates the Empress. Y...

Borderlands 2 Review 0

You're going to have to take your killing spirit and talents to the land of Pandora. You'll be playing the part of a Vault Hunter who is seeking the legendary vault that holds something that could change the course of history. The only problem is you're going to have to battle a man by the name of Handsome Jack, who has an endless supply of resources and likes to see others squirm. If you think you're up for the challenge then pick your poison as either a Siren, Assassin, Gunzerker, or Soldier. ...

The Secret World Review 1

I've been struggling to find the words I want to put in this review simply because of the unique MMO that this game is. You'll get the chance to play as either a member of the Templar, the Illuminati, or the Dragons. You'll be able to build your character with action points and skill points to unlock bonuses for your weapons as well as open up new attacks for different types of weapons. You'll have the chance to choose from a wide variety of weapons, ranging from pistols, hammers, and swords, to...

Red Faction: Armageddon Review 0

Red Faction: Armageddon picks the story up where the last game, Red Faction: Guerrilla and the made for TV movie Red Faction: Origins left off. You'll be playing the part of an outsider that can help stop an enemy that is awaking the monsters that sleep inside the ground of Mars. Will you be able to do enough to stop Mars' destruction, only time will tell.Graphically this game is on par with its predecessor. The big change is the landscape, yes it is still on Mars, but gone is the open-world-nes...

Penny Arcade Adventures: Episode 3 Review 0

FINALLY the saga continues for Tycho and Gabe. It might have taken a couple of extra years, and the developer and style might have changed, but in the end we finally have the third installation into the series. You will once again take part in trying to get to the bottom of what gods are left in the world, and what is corrupting the land. With a new developer you're going to notice that there's been some changes, changes that I think might have actually made for a better game.Graphically this ga...

Saint's Row: The Third Review 0

So as Grand Theft Auto continues to get more series with each iteration, Saint's Row continues to try to stay a bit crazy. In this version of the game you'll have to take on Luchadores, have the option of hitting individuals over the head with a dildo bat, and go on a game show where the main objective is to shoot as many mascots as possible. Then again if you were doing anything else, this might not be a Saint's Row game.Graphically for the most part the game looked like all the Saint's Row gam...

Alan Wake: American Nightmare Review 0

I wanted this game to be more of the Alan Wake that I feel in love, with but I'm going to tell you right now that this is not the case. This game takes the power of the flashlight, and the guns, and turns it into a third person shooter. The lack of real depth also strikes at my heart. The story is that you are trapped in a nightmare, but with your actions you can break free of that reality.Graphically the game almost stands up to the 360 version. The cut scenes are done with live actors, and the...

Kingdoms of Amalur Review 0

Kingdoms of Amalur is the first big game out the the studio founded by Red Sox Pitching Ace, Curt Schilling. It also employed the artistic skills of Todd McFarlane, and the storytelling power of R.A. Salvatore. You will take on the roll of a character who has already died, and yet somehow was able to return to life thanks to a device called the Well of Souls. You will not be able to remember your previous life, but you will have an advantage to all that live within the realms, you are outside of...

Journey Review 0

Journey is the latest release from ThatGameCompany. In this one you are a nomad clothed in a red hooded robe. You must journey through the desert, and other locations to reach the peak of a sacred mountain. You'll have to do this without any written queues. What lies high above? Well only those strong enough will find out.Graphically this game yet again blows me away. It's not that its hyper realistic, but there's something about this game that makes you sigh, and feel so comfortable about movin...

WARP Review 0

WARP is an XBLA title in which you play an alien named Zero. You've been captured by humans and they are trying to run tests on you, another a number of other aliens. You have to not only escape but find what you've lost, and rescue another alien that seems to be able to talk directly in your mind. The humans won't make it easy though as they will try to gun you down on sight. If they can't control you they will destroy you.Graphically you can see that the Unreal engine is used rather nicely. Yo...

FEZ Review 0

FEZ is the long awaited, award winning, game from Phil Fish, and Polytron Corporation. In the game you'll be playing the roll of Gomez, a citizen of the village who takes on the most important task there is. Once you meet with the elder with the eye patch, that's when the real adventure begins. This game blends 2D with 3D in such a way that I couldn't put down the controller until I played all the way through it.The graphics are done in an 8 bit style to give you that nostalgia effect, and that ...

Mass Effect 3 Review 0

I have been both dreading, and dying to play the final chapter in the Shepard saga that has been part of Mass Effect. I've played through the first and second game, loving the fact that my saves have sculpted my experience into something probably unique to most. It is finally the time to take on the Reapers, and try to save not only Earth, but the very galaxy's existence. You'll get to meet old friends, and make some new ones. There's a lot of game here to explore, if you want to, or you can fin...

RAGE Review 0

It took me a bit of time to finally get this game in my XBOX 360, but when I finally got it in I was excited. This was going to be an adventure that would bring me back to the old school id games, in the new generation. You will be putting on the personal of an Ark specialist, a person who was put into a hibernation chamber for the coming apocalypse and who is just now waking up to a whole new world. You'll find a world full of bandits and an organization with an agenda, the Authority.Graphicall...

Run Roo Run Review 0

The makers of Scribblenauts are back, and this time they come bearing a new iOS game called Run Roo Run. In this game all you're going to have to do is tap the screen, you won't need to be creative, or try to come up with impressive words, this time all you'll have to do is tap the screen. Yes I know I said it twice, but that's literally all you'll have to do in this game. In this game you will play the part of a parent kangaroo who has their Joey stolen from them. You'll have to jump your way t...

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Review 0

This has to be one of the more complete Zelda games I've ever played. You're going to start in a city named Skyloft, a city somehow suspended above to clouds, the ground has long since be forgotten. You'll enter in on the day of the Festival of the Goddess, and of course Zelda is the main star. Well something happens and Zelda gets sucked down to the world below, and this is where the journey begins. You'll have to traverse several different areas, defeat several types of enemies, and collect it...

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Review 0

This was probably one of the most anticipated games of the year for me, and I have to say that having put so much time into it, and planning on putting more time to seek out random dungeons that this game not only had me from start to finish, but left me wanting more. In the game you start off as a captive of the Imperials, this is going to be your execution day, but something happens. A Dragon attacks and all hell breaks loose. Somehow you're going to have to manage to fight your way out, and o...

Kinect Sports: Season Two Review 0

Microsoft has come out with a sequel to their sports game to show off the Kinect. In this game you'll get to play Football, Golf, Darts, Skiing, Baseball, and Tennis. As you play the different games you're going to be able to unlock difficulties to increase the experience and also the challenge.Graphically this game looks exactly like the first, with the exception of the change in sporting equipment. Everything was clearly done, and the informational videos told you exactly what you need to know...

Super Mario 3D Land Review 1

Mario is back in his old school style, and his desire to rescue the Princess from the clutches of Bowser. You will have to fight your way through levels upon levels that will have you remembering the good old days of Super Mario World 3, except this time it's in 3D and there's a little extra depth to the actual levels.Graphically this is the first game that I really liked in 3D, so I left the 3D ability on the 3DS while I played through almost all the levels. There is some serious variety in the...

NBA 2K12 Review 0

It is yet another season for basketball, and for fans out there this game went from a simulation of the real thing to a simulation of a fantasy. With the NBA lock out still going at the time of this review this game, in my mind, should be noted as strictly a fantasy. The selling point of this game was the different covers that could be found for it. You have Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, and my favorite, Larry Bird. The unfortunate thing is that this is truly the highlight of the game.Graphical...

professor layton and the last specter review 1

The next game from the popular puzzle solving series has come out and it is time to review it. This game actually takes a step back in time. When the game starts you will find that Layton is without Luke, and without an assistant, period. That changes quickly, but it is not Luke that you'll find by your side. Have no fear though Luke is in the game, and you will get a chance to see how Luke and Layton's relationship came to be. In the this game Layton receives a mysterious letter from an old fri...

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception Review 1

The new Uncharted has come out and you'll get to see some of your favorite characters. You'll get to play as Nathan Drake, treasure hunter, and all around finder of trouble. This adventure will actually have you reliving a little of your past, and also why you even got into the treasure hunting game. Once again you'll have to scale walls, figure out puzzles, and try not to die to get to the ultimate discovery for your character. That of course is what happened to Sir Francis Drake during his tra...

Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors Review 0

In this game for the DS you're going to play the part of Junpei a youngster who gets attacked and finds himself trapped on a boat along with eight other people. Each of these people have a story to tell, and you'll get to hear all about it through the game. Each character will have a bracelet attached to them with a corresponding number. You're going to need to use the numbers in combinations of 3 or 5 to unlock doors within the game. You'll also only have nine game hours (not actual playing tim...

Scribblenauts Remix Review 0

5th Cell has decided that their very popular words game, Scribblenauts, needed to be on more than just the DS. So the decision was made to re-vamp the game, give it 50 levels and put it on the iPad. You will once again be taking on your favorite character as always, and will have to use your dictionary in your brain to come up with creative solutions to solve puzzles.Graphically this looks as good if not better than the DS, simply because of the increase in screen size. Even with the increase in...

Killzone 3 Review 0

You will once again find yourself facing off against the Helghast. This game literally starts where the second game left off. You have killed the man in power, but now you have to see your men safely back. The problem is that nothing is easy, and you'll have to fight your way across a portion of the planet to try to escape. The strange thing is that there is something behind the scenes going on that could possibly destroy everyone.Graphically this game shows off what the PlayStation 3 can do. Th...

BulletStorm Review 0

I got the chance to play this game's demo and felt completely overwhelmed by all the stuff that I felt you needed to do, but I decided to give the full game a chance just to see if I would have the same experience. Thankfully I did not have the same experience and I actual got into the game. In the game you will be playing as the character, Gray, a super soldier who goes rogue with the rest of his group. Several years after going rogue he sees the chance to take down the man who sent them on all...

NCAA Football 12 Review 0

It is another year and EA has pumped out another, updated version, of their game NCAA Football. In this one you'll of course expect to have superior play from last year, and of course the updated rosters for all the teams. There will of course be the online play, dynasty mode, mascot match-up, and Road to Glory mode for you to play around with.Graphically this game is on par with all the previous titles, and you can easily see that the game's developers still don't give a hoot about the crowd as...

The Deus Ex franchise finally reappears and it is time to take on the mantle of Jansen, an ex-cop, now security for Sarif Industries. It all starts one night when you are about to escort a scientist, and love interest to go talk of the discovery that she thinks will revolutionize augmentations in humans. That's when it goes all wrong and the building comes under attack. You have to fight your way through to try to rescue not only that scientist but many others before it is too late. Not to give ...

The Gunstringer Review 0

The Gunstringer is a Kinect game created by Twisted Pixel. In the game you play an outlaw who was double crossed and comes back from the dead to seek vengeance upon those who betrayed him. Well at least that's what the puppet show is about as you are a marionette. You will be controlling your directional movement with your left hand and trying to squeeze off your shots with your six-shooter in your right. Now of course there is a left-handed mode, so at least this company remembered that the wor...

Gears of War 3 Review 0

The final chapter has been written, and it is time to once again battle the Locust with Dom, Marcus, and others. Will this finally bring an end to the war, or will humanity fad into the past? Only you will be able to determine that. There is also the very important question of a certain bloodline that seems to meet misfortune at every turn in the series, will this Carmine actually see himself live through the game?Graphically this game looks stunning. I had a chance to play around with some of t...

Puzzle Agent 2 Review 0

It is time once again to step into the shoes of the FBI's best puzzle solver, Nelson Tethers. For those of you who haven't played the first game, I'm sorry but I have to divulge some secrets. This game starts up where the last one left off. You have returned from Scoggins and find that even though you solved the case of the eraser factory, you are left unsatisfied. There was so much more left unexplained, and the puzzle solver in you screams to be able to put the missing pieces that were left mi...

I got to see this very game at PAX East this year and immediately though, now that's something I haven't seen, and I want to play it. Well the time has finally come for this game to join the ranks of the XBOX 360's Summer of Arcade. In this game you will be playing the part of a kid who wakes up to find that everything he knows is now in ruins. He'll have to search what he calls home for some answers, and when he finally just starts finding things out its off to the real adventure. Soon you'll f...

Dungeons of Dredmor Review 0

Dungeons of Dredmor has this almost old school RPG feel to it. You're placed within a randomly generated dungeon and your mission is to buff up your character as well as defeat the ancient evil that has somehow broken the bonds that hold him. You'll have to go through several different types of monsters, survive traps, and learn how to best use what you have at your disposal. If you can do that then perhaps you can save everyone.Graphically you are not going to be blown away by this game, but in...

In the game Catherine you get to act out a very dark and twisted soap opera of sorts. You will be playing the part of Vincent a man scared of commitment and yet in a long term relationship with a girl named Katherine. It isn't until Katherine starts pushing that the story begins, along with the nightmares. Soon after the discussion of marriage starts to heavily weigh into the conversation Vincent meets a beautiful blond at his favorite watering hole, the Stray Sheep. This is where the real fun b...

Duke Nukem Forever Review 0

Let me start off by saying that this is one of those games that had been in development for so long that no one was quite sure what would happen. This game also went into a momentary state of being thought dead as 3d Realms ran out of money. It was through the brave move of Gearbox that this game came into being.In this game you will be playing the part of Duke Nukem, your super badass, monster ass kicking, roid raging hero stuck in the nineties. To be fair though this game should have come out ...

In this version of the game you'll get to choose between the Dishwasher and the Prisoner (Yuki).

You'll be running through very mute looking environments that are just begging to be redecorated with those who will fall.Graphically at first you'll think that there wasn't muc...
